Book Review: In Excess by Quinn Anderson

About In Excess

My Rating: ★★★★★

Publisher: Less than Three Press

What I love about “In Excess” is that it is a feel-good book. It has just the right amount of angst in it but not so much that it would leave me reeling and heavy-hearted for days.

In Excess is an adorable love story between the brash and sexy but “underprivileged” Nikolas “Nik” Steele and the equally sexy, bored, clueless, and overconfident, spoiled brat “king” of the Academy of Holy Names—the one and only Seth Prinsen.

Being new to a school for the privileged made Nik an object of everyone’s scrutiny, most especially since he was a scholar and is therefore considered, “different.”

As in every romance novel that I’ve read, there were predictable moments, but these were outweighed by the tension that the game of seduction brought about. I also liked the role played by Theo and Dante—Seth’s friends. In the end, it got me thinking who was really manipulating who. My only regret is that it ended a bit too soon for my liking and I really wanted to read more. Lol. ^_^

Lastly, let me extend my warmest congratulations to Miss Quinn Anderson for her beautiful and marvelous debut novel, looking forward to reading more of your works. ^_^
